Joel Northam reports for Acronym TV. He states:
“President Obama could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago, yet fortunately he was privileged enough to receive an elite education whilst being groomed by established power to become the drone bombing, bank bailing, whistleblower torturing, immigrant deporting, civil liberty shredding, corporate puppet that he is today. Although the Trayvon Martin tragedy still burns deep within our hearts, it is a blessing that he doesn’t have to see politicians use his death to cater to the emotions of the angry masses while they continue their business as usual of worldwide plunder of resources and exploitation of the global working class.”
There’s some nifty rhetorical patterning going on in Northam’s report:
… drone bombing, bank bailing, whistleblower torturing, immigrant deporting, civil liberty shredding,1 corporate puppet2, 3 that he is today4 …
1. Parallelism: “…ing, … ing, ….”.
3. Climax. The voice rises to “puppet” and then falls away with “that he is today.”
4. Alliteration: “corporae puppe tha he is oday.” The aspirates almost spit.
Fun stuff! Always nice to see a proper shredding.
